"Adele and her partner have separated," the singer's reps told the Associated Press in a statement. "They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment."
The Grammy winner kept her relationship with the entrepreneur-philanthropist very private and didn't address the romance rumors until January 2012. That following June, the "Hello" singer announced she and Konecki were expecting their first child. The couple welcomed a son, Angelo, in October 2012.
Although she alluded to tying the knot with Koneckik when she thanked her "husband" while accepting the Grammy award for Album of the Year in 2017, it wasn't until the following month at a concert in Brisbane, Australia that Adele confirmed the news she had tied the knot.
Adele's ex dumbed her and she sang "someone like you" She met a new guy, she messed and almost got dumped, she sang "hello" he forgave her. She just got separated again, what is she gonna sing this time round?! 😂😂
However, there were many who slammed those celebrating Adele's split. Fans called out these people, ripping them for being excited about a new album rather than being concerned about Adele's mental health.
"Adele is separated from her husband and the only thing you can tweet is joy for a heartbreak album?" a person wrote. "Do you know how low she was when she gave us 21? I won't wish that sort of pain on her again."
"True fans are not excited at the news of her heartbreak," another added. "Even if Adele was the one to end it we know it is still hard for her because she has a huge heart. This is the father of her child and was her husband and boyfriend for 7 years."

Perhaps it's the former single mom in me, but all these celebratory tweets about Adele's divorce — “a new album!” — makes me bone weary. All I want for her and her child right now is a quiet patch of the world where no one is excited for her sadness.
Adele spoke about hw low she got when wrote 21. It was the lowest moment of her life until Simon & they had their kid. Imagine ending a 7 year relationship that produced a child & the first thing the world says is “yass new album!” Do better,world🌎Adele's been good to u #Adele pic.twitter.com/RGNMxnaipT
True fans are not excited at the news of her heartbreak. Even if Adele was the one to end it we know it is still hard for her because she has a huge heart. This is the father of her child and was her husband and boyfriend for 7 years.
I love this woman. Always have. Always will. Dying for her new music BUT I would never want it to be like this. Adele is a queen. I am really worried for her. Please someone tell me she is doing ok. Love You pic.twitter.com/4mm641UoMJ
